Milestones – First in the World


With his experience and dedication to only robotic surgery, Dr. Abaza skillfully performs all types of robotic urologic procedures, including both the most routine and highly complex procedures, with excellent outcomes. Beyond giving every patient the best chances at an excellent result, Dr. Abaza’s skill has allowed him to develop groundbreaking robotic surgery procedures that previously were thought to be impossible with minimally-invasive surgery and only possible to perform with traditional open surgery.

Dr. Abaza was the first in the world to perform the following procedures:
  • Robotic Nephrectomy for Kidney Cancer with Caval Thrombus
  • Robotic Partial Nephrectomy for Kidney Cancer with Vein Thrombus
  • Robotic Adrenalectomy for Adrenal Carcinoma
  • Robotic Kidney Autotransplantation
  • Robotic Ureteral Repair after Cystectomy for Bladder Cancer
